In Princess Sparkley's History lesson for school this year one of the famous American's we learned about was Theodore Roosevelt. And since it was history for Kindergarteners, we made a construction paper Teddy Bear. She was seriously distraught that she wasn't going to be able to sleep with it, etc. So I told her we'd made her a bear out of fabric and stuffing when we got a chance. So a few months ago she picked out the fabric, and yesterday I got around to making it for her. I chose that over letting the kids paint. I admit, I'm horrible about letting the kids paint. It makes a huge mess and then I have paper with wet paint on it drying on every flat surface of the house. So here are our creations. A teddy bear, and for Buddy, a Thomas train named Thomas Orange Juice [our last name].
